Father Gabriel of Saint Mary Magdalen reflects on the Eucharist, the gift of Love, instituted by Christ on Holy Thursday night.

What should true mortification aim at?
Why is the Cross good for us? Why do we need passive suffering?
How do we acquire humility of heart?
What does Christ’s prediction of His Passion mean for us? What lessons can we draw from it?

Why is chastity for everyone? And, what kind of chastity should we practice?
Are we all called to a spirit of poverty?
Why is voluntary poverty so important?
